Of course it is, which is why I didn't do so. In English, "I believe in X"
where X is a value rather than an empirical proposition, does not mean "I
assign a high probability to X", it means something like "I take as an axiom
that X is to be valued". (If your objection is that English is fuzzy, I will
remind you that it evolved for the use of humans, not AI programs.)
